.NET (dotGNU too) "Four short years ago, Microsoft unveiled its new framework/engine for programming and running applications in a virtual environment, and the world was stunned. Microsoft had introduced a run-time environment that was for the first time a true 'write once, run everywhere' implementation, but that was far from being the end. With .NET 3.0 on the loom, NeoSmart Technologies takes a look at how far .NET has come and just how long it can keep going."

Yes, this post sucks.

No, SugarCRM is not the only OSS game in town. Actually, there's a product called SplendidCRM which redeploys SugarCRM onto a Microsoft-based platform (ASP.NET/SQL Server).

Yes, the poster is incorrect about the "write once, run everywhere" concept (that is clearly Java).

No, Java actually does suck. Actually, the .NET Framework is by-design intended to be ported to any platform but with a strong base. That being said, .NET's base is the client OS market; Java's base is the *nix OSes (incl. servers).

In other words, there's a lot of FUD going around. In the end, everything that is developed in OSS technologies can be built as perfectly in .NET; however, both technologies are using similar business strategies to control the market.
